Ana Karen Barajas is a musician and multimedia artist who developed the first research of Outsider Art in Mexico. As someone who connected with Outsider Art, she soon realized that these artists could be hiding in plain sight, and they could be members of a largely neglected and marginalized community. Her fascination with Outsider Art expands from visual artists to encompass Outsider Musicians, which is what drew her to the music of Dave Bixby. She also makes cumbia music as part of Karen y Los Remedios.
In addition to her music career, she is an image advisor of the educational movement and civil association Science Clubs International. She’s currently a PhD student of “Arts Therapy and Alternative approaches in human services where she studies creative process through qualitative and computer science tools focusing in people under the Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Schizophrenic Spectrum Disorder.
